An impromptu speech is common. In business, at school, or at social and other public events, you are often unexpectedly called on to “make a few marks” or brief remarks about a specific topic. The ability to speak well on short notice is a useful skill.
Impromptu speaking challenges a speaker to develop an organized speech in a limited time. However, the thought of public speaking intimidates many people. This fear is often diminished when there is time to prepare and practice before getting up in front of an audience. What happens, though, when there is no time to prepare and you are asked to speak without notice? This can make the most confident presenters very nervous.
In this webinar you will learn tactics for thinking under pressure, and practice strategies to develop a polished speech brilliantly and confidently within minutes.
From Concept to Action you will have an opportunity if you choose to practice a short impromptu speech in small groups, followed by review and feedback.
